Field level security feature

Hello everybody,

We are evaluating a couple of .NET CMS's like Orchard, DNN and Kentico for our upcoming crm systems and their portals renovations.

One of the things that in most Crm/Erp/Cms systems exists, is the possibility to restrict access to fields based on user roles/permissions.

To clarify myself, the Field-level security let administrators restrict users’ access to view and edit specific fields in for example:

  • Detail and edit pages
  • Related lists
  • List views
  • Reports
  • Connect Offline
  • Email and mail merge templates
  • Custom links
  • The portal
  • Synchronized data
  • Imported data

The fields that users see on detail and edit pages are a combination of page layouts and field-level security settings. The most restrictive field access settings of the two always apply. For example, if a field is required in the page layout and read-only in the field-level security settings, the field-level security overrides the page layout and the field will be read-only for the user.

My colleague and I have looked around in the code and couldn't find anything that looks like it. Did we overlooked it?

Does anyone know how to achieve Field-level security in Orchard?

You'd have to build your own module for that.
